Eco Overwhelm? Start with Food 🥕


You’ve embarked on your eco-journey… And holy crap there’s a lot of information to take in! You feel paralysed. You wanna to make changes in your life. You wanna help the environment. Fight climate change, and make the world a better place. But there’s so much to fix you don’t know where to start! Every day you discover a new piece of information that leads you down a rabbit hole of how we’ve fucked the planet  And you start to loose hope…

I call this eco overwhelm.

I’ve been there, fricking hell, I still go there! The good news is there’s a way to get around the paralysis.

Start small. Start with something you can control fully. And my suggestion is to:

Start with Food.

Because you can choose the food you want to eat more of. And the stuff you don’t want to have in your house. You can choose where you buy your food. Or if you want to start growing your own.

And once you’ve got this down pat you can move on the the next thing. Like making your own cleaning products.

Just remember all of this is going to take time. Because you need to unlearn everything you’ve done for pretty much your whole life. So just go easy on yourself 

With all that said I’m always on a lookout for info about yummy vegetarian meals. New ways to cook my vegetables and how they help you live a healthier, happier life.

And if you don’t know by now. Cooking and preparing food is definitely not my strong point so any help I can get is always welcome 

So when I came across this article by Positive Health Wellness. I was pretty excited to flex my cooking muscles. And experiment in the kitchen which doesn’t happen (EVER!).

The article explains all the good things you get out of:

  1. Blueberries
  2. Cucumber
  3. Eggplant (Also known as aubergine and brinjal)
  4. Hot Peppers
  5. Mushrooms
  6. Shallots
  7. Kohlrabi (I’ve never heard of before)
  8. Zucchini

Out of everything on the list I’m most excited about blueberries. Because a lot of peeps I’m following on Instagram have been growing their own and I’ve got a bit of garden envy!

These blueberries are taking forever to mature!
